Robb Recommends: The best facial rejuvenation products to try

A revitalised visage takes time

From a potent night cream that repairs your skin while you sleep, to a cryotherapy-based cream mask that firms up the skin with a cold snap, here are four facial products you might want to arm yourself with as we enter prep mode in anticipation of year-end parties.

Sisley Supremÿa Le Nuit Le Grand Soin Anti-Age

Combining the soft application of a cream and the potency of a serum, the Supremÿa Le Nuit Le Grand Soin Anti-Age works on cellular rejuvenation while you sleep. The product’s fundamental regeneration complex formula comprises plant-based active ingredients that work in tandem. First, it stimulates the production of melatonin to regulate the skin’s regeneration cycle. Following which, it activates metabolic proteins in the skin to repair itself and, subsequently, kickstarts the skin’s regeneration by breaking down and eliminating waste in the cells and tissues.

La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Cream

La Prairie’s flagship facial firming product, the Skin Caviar launched in 1987, gets its own shot of revitalisation. The Skin Caviar Luxe Cream improves on its predecessor’s formulation with caviar micro-nutrients that purports to stimulate your skin’s metabolism and restore its firmness. Based on a formula that is developed in-house, caviar micro-nutrients contains over 300 different natural nutrients aimed at energising metabolic activities and pathways in the skin.

Dior claims to have pinpointed the exact cellular pathway that causes our skin to lose its structure, texture and colour. With the Prestige Le Nectar Premier, it attempts to “target ageing at its source”. This serum derives its potency from the first blooms of the Rose de Granville, harvested from the Dior rose garden and their essence extracted into a concentrated and molecule-rich formula. Devising a seven-step formulation process to enable the serum to be effectively absorbed by the skin, Dior promises that your skin will appear denser, firmer and smoother after just one month of use.

Clarins Cryo-Flash Cream-Mask

A blast of coolness is certainly welcome in suffocating tropical heat—and even more so if it helps plump up the skin. Clarins’ Cryo-Flash Cream-Mask takes a leaf from cryotherapy treatments used by athletes to aid muscle recovery in sub-zero temperatures. Infused with organic evening primrose extract and a menthol derivative in its formulation, the mask delivers a cooling effect upon application that stimulates microcirculation to eradicate the appearance of puffy and tired skin.
